Celebration turtle Comcáac in Socaix,México
Meat, joined international sea turtle organizations, spent long hard hours monitoring the remaining green and Ridleys. They have enlisted Funders like the Christensen Fund, the Packard Foundation, and Grupo Tortuguero. 30 of them, elders and young, traveled to Armila Panama to celebrate with the Guna indigenous people where the 4th largest site of leatherback nesting takes place in May each year. Last night, the night after famed turtle champion Mayra Estrella's birthday their belief and work was rewarded when this young male showed up. There will be a 4 day celebration. Dreaming, faith, allegiance to ancient tradition, willingness to adapt to the 21st century! There's considerable complexity to digest.
